System wide installation of Mbed Studio under Linux


I am a beginner in terms of Mbed Studio and Mbed OS.

Is it possible to install the Mbed Studio centrally on Linux? E.g. in “/usr/local” or in “/opt”.

After the installation I tried to move the files and directories that the installation script installed in “$ HOME” to the “/opt/Mbed Studio” directory and to create links in the “$HOME” directory, but it doesn’t work. Calling “mbed-studio” leads to nothing, no error output in the terminal window and no Studio window.

Thanks in advance,

Hello Michael,

Try to add an alias in the $HOME/.bashrc file with path to the actual location of the mbed-studio file.
For example:

alias mbed-studio=/opt/Mbed Studio/mbed-studio
